The Esperanza de Lacaya group is about to enter their first cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Achacachi focal point. The group is made up of 8 members, and is led by a board of directors of which Eusebia is the President. The members are involved in a variety of businesses which include: blanket weaving, food sales, corner stores, purchase and sale of cattle.

The loan that they are taking out will benefit small businesses that Eusebia is a member of. She states that this is the first time they have joined Pro Mujer, they were invited by a sponsor from the institution who visited her home. Currently, Eusebia has a business catching and selling fish. She learned this trade many years ago because it was a family business, and after meeting her husband, she decided to branch out on her own.

The loan will help her to purchase nets which she will buy from the wholesalers in the city of La Paz, and she will then install them in her workspace. This line of work allows her to generate an income to support her family as she lives in a common-law marriage and has four children. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she likes the training offered by the institute.

This is a Group Loan

In a group loan, each member of the group receives an individual loan but is part of a larger group of individuals. The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.

Kiva's Field Partners typically feature one borrower from a group. The loan description, sector, and other attributes for a group loan profile are determined by the featured borrower's loan. The other members of the group are not required to use their loans for the same purpose.
